Poems From The Porch



Just For You


The sunlight is tickling the shimmering grass this morning,

and the crows are laughing in response.


The sky is fully awake,

rolling back the cover of the barely-perceptible clouds.


I am warmed today by fleece and fire, and

enfolded by awe and a cotton blanket.


My heart has expanded,

beyond the borders of my flesh, in gratitude


for the picture Love is painting,


for the song Love is singing, and


for the cozy comforts Love is providing


—just for me.


Look around right now,


then close your eyes and listen.


Feel the fabric embracing your body.


Love is offering these gifts here and now


—just for you.
